TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (73) . . . The Sequel!

This week's bonus joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Reuters (from Tuesday, July 18; link good at time of posting):
A young Croat who posted a photograph of himself speeding on a motorbike on the Web was tracked down and fined by the police, the Jutarnji List daily reported Tuesday.

The 28-year-old, identified only as D.M., took a photo of his speedometer showing 170 km (100 mph) on a back road in northern Croatia and then put it on the Web site of his local municipality.

Police found him three days later.

. . . .

In addition to the speeding ticket, the police also discovered the motorcycle had been illegally imported from neighboring Slovenia and was not registered -- likely leading to another hefty fine, the daily said.
